My Microsoft Xbox 360 Pro's power brick wont turn


You can try to Reset the AC adapter by following steps below.

1. Unplug the xbox 360 AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the system and from the wall outlet or power strip).

2. After you've waited a full 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter back in on both ends and check to see if the power light comes on.

If this doesn't work it's probably fried from the power surge.

My xbox 360 had gotten the red ring, so I heated the mother board with a heat gun and then replace the thermal paste, now the power brick is orange/yellow when plugged in, turn on the box it goes green for...


We STRONGLY recommend you not to use heat gun as it can heat other components, when your system have 3 red light and no fan are spinning it means that one of your fuses has gotten damaged and no power can go through your GPU chip.
Thanks

My x-box won't turn on with everything plugged in


Hi check on the power brick that when you switch it on at the mains you get the orange light on the power brick, if you have this watch this light as you press the on button on the console if it turns red on the power brick then you have internal error on your xbox, if it stays orange then try taking out the power lead out of the back of the xbox 360 then push it back in sometimes if you dont get it pushed in far enough it wont work push it in as hard as you can then double check by pushing it back in then try pressing the on button.

if when you turn it on at mains you dont have any lights light up on the power brick then this could mean you either need to change the fuse in the plug or the power brick has over heated and needs replacing, if you do have an orange light on it then instead of pressing the on button on the xbox try pressing the dvd drive open button and see if that then switches it on.

let me know what light you get on the power brick and then ill do my best to assist you further.

most of the time its just because you dont push the power lead in the back of the xbox far enough, you can push it in thinking its in far enough when its not try pushing it in that little bit further and you should find it will come on.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Console wont turn on, like theres no power going to it. it worked fine and then without warning it just stopped working. I tried other consoles in the same plug and they worked fine.


Check the light on the power brick when pushing the power button on the console. If it does not turn from yellow to green, the console isn't getting power. If that checks out, or the power brick checks out on other consoles. It is an internal power issue. It could be something as simple as a bad RF board (where the power button is) or it could have an issue with the power inlet itself, the RF board it an easy fix no matter if you have tech experience or not. It simply plugs in and out. If it comes to be a more severe problem I would have a professional diagnose and correct.

My xbox 360 AC adapter is in yellow light and the console is not working, what i do to make it to chage to green light?


If you have no power to the console or the console itself is not powered on then the light will not turn green. In other words...until you can turn the power on to your xbox 360 the light will remain yellow. Check the connection to the back of your 360 it may have wiggled loose somehow. The instant that the power brick senses power making a complete cycle in your 360 your light will turn green. If the 360 fails to turn on when you push the power button or when you push the center button on your wireless controller or when you push the center button on a wired or wireless controller that is connected physically to the 360 then I hope it is still under warranty. If not then you should contact someone about how to repair this issue. It may be that the power button is the only thing broken on this machine.

I get a red light on my powerpack


i think that means that the connection between the power brick and the xbox isnt working, either your xbox needs repair or you need a new power brick, ask a friend with a 360 if you can borrow theirs and also their wires for the powerbrick and if it works then YOU need a new powerbrick and if it doesnt then your xbox is broken
